our international primary school in amman

Our 5 to 11-year-olds follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP).

Focused on the development of the whole child, the PYP is an inquiry-based curriculum that nurtures caring, curious, reflective, and resilient global learners. It also develops core literacy, numeracy and social skills.

Through immersive themes and topics, our students gain an understanding of how different subjects relate to each other, as well as to the world around them.

six transdisciplinary themes

The Primary Years Programme (PYP) at Amman Academy is defined by six transdisciplinary themes of international significance.

Through these themes, your child will develop essential skills, knowledge, and understanding in science, the arts, maths, languages, social studies, and physical, social, and personal education. They’ll also learn how to apply their learning to a range of situations. 
The six transdisciplinary themes:
  • Who we are.
  • Where we are in place and time.
  • How we express ourselves.
  • How the world works.
  • How we organise ourselves.
  • Sharing the planet.

units of inquiry

The six transdisciplinary themes are taught through cross-curricular modules of study known as Units of Inquiry. Every year, each age group follows one Unit of Inquiry per theme.

The units allow for in-depth investigations into important ideas, identified by our experienced teachers, and require a high level of student involvement. The units typically last for six weeks.
